Cincinnati State votes in favor of raising tuition

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - Cincinnati State trustees have voted in favor of raising tuition when they switch to semesters in August.

Tuition rates will go up by $200, plus a $65 increase which was deferred last year. Annual tuition for a full-time student will be more than $4,500.

The university is raising tuition in the face of rising health care costs for faculty.
